medicare benefits or privatize them. >> i have never been torn like this in any election, and that's the god's truth. i could have lied to you and said i will vote for romney, but i do not know if i am, and i am a republican. >> state pensions and health care are among the biggest contributors to u.s. deficits. americans agree that government spending has to be cut, but the question is -- how? the focal point senior center is just around the corner from coral k. it offers services to the elderly. for example, on this monday, they can receive health advice from an expert. and then, they can join in the fund and bowl with a wii game console. members of the center pay annual dues of just $5. the rest of the center's funds comes from donations and public money. many here are concerned about the future. this man says romney does not understand the need. >> he wants to take away too much because he thinks they are all too lazy. may be some are, but there's a lot of people out there that need the assistance. i do not trust the man. he could be a very nice person as an individual, but as far as

deep cuts in social security and medicare over time. or we can embrace a balanced approach. that's what i support. i think we can go back to the kind of tax rates we had under the clinton administration when the upper income earners were doing well and the entire economy was growing. we will have to make some tough choices. a balanced approach is the only approach i believe will get us there. >> your rebuttal? >> it's amazing to me that you can stand here having voted 4 trillion dollar deficits for the last of four years, the largest, fastest debt increase in american history and say we have to control spending. you've done nothing to control spending over the last four years. with respect to cut, cap, and balance, it's amazing to me that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have, and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and to prioritize things like social security, medicare, and education. that's why i support a balanced budget amendment to
